The fast-growing TikTok video app has an immense user base, but among them, there is an elite group that has stood out from the rest, becoming the most-followed personalities of the entire platform.

Interestingly, while many other social platforms have become overrun with celebrities and brands as the top accounts, independent creators are currently at the top of TikTok and it hasn’t yet caved to mainstream celebrity culture.

TikTok, the beginning of a new era

TikTok became, in just three years, one of the most important social networks in the world.

Its premise has captivated many, as we can see in the numbers revealed by the Social Tracker platform.

However, even more impressive is knowing who are those who have stood out on the platform.

The list, consisting of 20 accounts, reveals that just three brand accounts are at the top (two being of TikTok and TikTok_India and one of Live TV).

The rest are individuals (or groups of friends) that have managed to attract millions of followers.

Those who wish to belong to this exclusive list will have to exceed 20 million followers.
